Laser Therapy in Essendon

How does laser therapy work?

laser-therapyDuring treatment of the tissue with the laser beam, an interaction between cells and photons takes place, this is a photo-chemical reaction. The goal of laser therapy is to deliver light energy units from red and infrared laser radiation, called photons, to damaged cells. It is the consensus of experts is that photons absorbed by the cells through laser therapy stimulate the mitochondria to accelerate production of ATP.

This biochemical increase in cell energy is used to transform live cells from a state of illness to a stable, healthy state. Over 4000 studies have been conducted in recent years to validate the effectiveness of cold laser therapy. Cold lasers treatment systems must be cleared by the TGA.

Our Cold laser is a medical grade device that is being operated by medically trained professionals, so you can be sure that your laser technician is elite.

General Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects

Increased Cell Growth: Laser photons accelerates cellular reproduction and growth.
Increased Metabolic Activity: Photons initiate a higher output of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP).
Faster Wound Healing: Cold laser photons stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue
Anti-Inflammatory Action: Laser photons reduce swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints resulting in enhanced joint mobility.
Increased Vascular Activity: Laser photons induce temporary vasodilation that increases blood flow to affected areas.
Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation: Laser photons reduce the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
Stimulated Nerve Function: Laser photon exposure speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life.
Pain Reduction: Almost all systems have a mode of operation specifically designed to reduce pain.
